Protect Yourself from Illegal Collection Agency Tactics

FDCPA, illegal debt collection, collection agency harassment, debt collector practices, debt collector problems, debt attorneyThere is a Federal law that we want to share with Wisconsin consumers called the “Fair Debt Collections Practices Act,” or “FDCPA.”  The Federal Trade Commission enforces the FDCPA. 

The main purpose of the law is to protect people just like you from illegal collection practices that some debt collectors may attempt.  It is important to get the facts about this law, to protect yourself, but also to know what to do if you have been violated.  If you find yourself in a situation whereby debt collectors are acting in an illegal manner, you have the right to file a claim.  Time to react is limited, so speak to a bankruptcy attorney as soon as possible. If you are unsure about whether or not to file a complaint, a Debt Advisors bankruptcy attorney can help.

Do You Have a Viable Case Against a Debt Collector?

Dealing with aggressive, rude creditors and their agents adds more unnecessary stress to your already stressful debt situation.  If you or someone you know is being harassed by debt collectors, it is important to know your rights. Debt Advisors Law Offices is a Wisconsin-based bankruptcy law firm that can help advice whether or not you may have a case against a debt collection agency or debt collector.

When a Collection Agency Violates Consumer Rights

The Fair Debt Collections Practices Act is very clear; you do not have to tolerate the outlined unlawful behaviors.  Violations of the Fair Debt Collections Practices Act, is a serious matter.  The facts and examples shared on this website represent a sample of consumer precautions, and protections that the FDCPA offers.

Here are some facts about the Fair Debt Collections Practices Act:

  • The FDCPA governs unlawful debt collection in the form of mail, phone & email
  • The FDCPA prohibits a debt collector from contacting you at your place of work
  • The FDCPA prevents debt collectors from contacting your family members
  • The FDCPA determines when a creditor can or cannot contact you during a given day
  • The FDCPA states that threats to garnish wages, sue, imprison, or evict you are unlawful
  • The FDCPA prevents collectors from harassing, lying, or making derogatory statements to you
  • The FDCPA stops debt collectors from false representation and regulates what they can say
  • The FDCPA prevents debt collectors from adding fees or additional charges to your current debt

  • 5 star review  Mike Georg was extremely helpful during the entirety of my process. He made sure I understood exactly what was going to happen and he was always there to answer any questions I may have had. I really like the fact that I didn’t have to pay all out of pocket at once. Their payment plan made it easy for me to pay what I had to without breaking the bank. I’m completely satisfied with the level of professionalism that everyone in the office has. Even to this day I’m able to get in touch with them which I’m really grateful for. I’d definitely recommend them to my family and friends. If your someone who’s looking to get out of debt but are skeptical, you’ll have no worries here with Debt Advisors. The process is quick and easy.

  • 5 star review  I still remember the day when I started my bankruptcy back in 2016. I selected Debt Advisors because a good friend of mine had recommended Atty Mike Georg to me. After we met I was glad that I did select Debt Advisors for many reasons. Mainly, it was the professionalism and care that Mike and his staff showed me throughout the entire process. It felt good knowing that my situation would be taken care of efficiently and in a timely manner. Even after my bankruptcy was discharged Attorney Mike Georg and Debt Advisors have been there for me in 2018 and this 2020. Both times I've needed professional help with things like providing me with documents and forms that I've needed from my case. I strongly encourage anyone looking for debt consultation to visit Debt Advisors for help. They're great at what they do!

  • 5 star review  Bankruptcy is never fun, but this Law Office made it so much easier. If I ever had any questions at all they were answered timely. They even helped me through a rough time when I ended up having to pay taxes and had a big medical exspense too! They were always kind and never made me feel bad for having to do the bankruptcy. They were sympathetic to why and just helped me through it! I recommend them to anyone I know going through this or having to start this process. I know of two of the people I referred who used htem and loved them too! Thank you Debt Advisors Law Offices! Jeremy and Angel thank you personally!

  • 5 star review  I can confidently say that Debt Advisors is NOT in the business of taking advantage of you in your current situation. Debt Advisors is in the business of helping you get in a better place than you are now. I was there, constantly worrying about this large amount of debt that I owed. Feeling sick to my stomach and unable to sleep at night. Then I talked to Mike. He is genuine and honest. Having him in my corner took this huge weight off my chest. If you are in this place, I highly recommend giving Debt Advisors a call, it is the first step in the right direction.
